Trump Taps Rep. Tom Price to Lead HHSDonald Trump has picked Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, The New York Times reports. Price, a vocal critic of the Affordable Care Act, would likely be central to Trump’s plan to repeal or change the health-care reform law. A former orthopedic surgeon, Price has recently criticized the ACA for its rising premiums and cuts to health-care options. He has suggested alternative bills while in Congress, although it is still unclear how Trump plans to act on the Affordable Care Act. “Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal after meeting with President Obama this month.
